We understand that visiting a church for the first time can be a little daunting. As you visit a new community of people you could be wondering a variety of things. However, we’d love to welcome you. So, please come with all your questions and we’d love to try and answer them. Our hope is you will find this to be a place you can be comfortable from the very first moment you meet us.
As you plan to visit with us on Sunday you may have questions like: What is a church? Where do I go? Where do my kids go? What will the music be like? What is the teaching like? What will people be wearing? To help you, we’ve tried to give some brief answers to most of these things below and you can also check out our short video on what a typical Sunday at Terra North Adams feels and looks like.
There is ample off-street parking at 2 primary City lots. The first is behind our gathering space, which is the same parking lot behind Public Eat + Drink and Mountain One Bank. From this lot, you can follow the Terra Nova signage and enter through the building’s main corridor. Additionally, directly across Main St is another large City Parking lot.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, we have found our Terra Kids program in a season of not having the space or teachers for a weekly in-person program. Because of this, we have started putting out weekly podcasts in lieu of a kids program on Sunday mornings. Podcasts include weekly stories and activities to not just improve our children’s understanding of God, but to equip parents to disciple their children at home as well. Podcasts can be found on Spotify and Apple streaming platforms – just search “Terra Kids Cast.”
If you choose to join us in-person, there is a designated space in our lobby for children ages 10 and under to safely play and make crafts during the service. Everyone must be masked at all times, and follow social distancing guidelines. This children’s area is parent-manned – meaning that children are watched by their own parents.
At Terra we love our role of coming alongside families in partnering with parents by helping to equip them to be the primary influencers in their children’s spiritual development.
We believe our youth are a vital part of the church and we want to provide venues where they can grow, serve the church and their community, while journeying together in faith alongside their peers.
As a brand new church plant, we currently do not have the resources & staffing to lead our own Youth Programs here in North Adams. If you feel led to lead in this capacity or have ideas you’d like to bring to the table, please email Pastor Paul.
